In business, it’s the little things that will kill you. That’s why it’s important that your business development team focuses on how to cut down the time it takes to complete daily routine tasks. Daily routine tasks that suck up a bunch of time are going to severely hinder your ability to accelerate and grow your company.
Look for repetition points.
I’m talking about repetitive tasks that multiple people in your organization have to do, day in, and day out, such as data entry of invoices. Having multiple people sitting at desks, manually typing in information all day, is flat out crazy. Not only is it crazy, but it’s not cost-effective. What is cost-effective, is investing in technology that will automate this process for you.
Take a look around.
My recommendation is that you take a look around your office, see what groups are doing the most repetitive tasks, find out why they’re actually doing the tasks, and then work with your business development team to streamline or automate these processes.
If you keep your eyes open as you walk around your office, you’ll clearly start to see some common tasks that can be easily automated. It’s all about streamlining workflows to maximum efficiency, while delivering the highest quality results.
The small things matter.
Remember, the little things will kill you in business, so make the most of your time, and make the most of your employees time, by looking to remove the manual repetitive processes that grind your business to a halt. The time to improve daily routine tasks is now, don’t wait any longer.
